February 21, 2018.

The dollar index traded sharply higher across the board ahead of the anticipated FOMC meeting minutes tonight as investors look past this short term dollar rally for clues regarding future FED moves. Metals turned lower with Gold closing below 1330$ per ounce and Silver closing under 16.5$. Global markets still without China traded mostly sideways in very narrow ranges with EU markets enjoying the pullback in the Euro to move higher despite Wall Street weakness.

UK Earnings Index at 9:30 am, UK Inflation report at 2:15 pm and FOMC meeting minutes at 7 pm are the important news on the agenda Wednesday.
